mozilla 1.3,2 cannot access IPv6 addressed host via IPv4

I updated mozilla port from 1.2.1_1,2 to 1.3,2 and realized that
it fails to reach some sites.  It just says "Done" in the status bar
and nothing happens.

It seems to be those servers that have both IPv4 and IPv6 address that
are the victims, eg:,

I am running FreeBSD 4.8-RC. I have IPv6 lladdr assigned to my
network interfaces but do not have IPv6 link to the Internet.

Am I the only one seeing this problem?
